What a PERFECT example of guerrilla marketing.
If this works, I think it may actually change the way we, the American people, accomplish things in the future. Kinda excited for April. WDE

KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.

Not to take away from the cause, but man, what brilliant execution. So powerful. Definitely could change things for the better.
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
Yeah, extremely well done....very moving. I'll definitely pass it on. Thanks for posting.
So I'm passing it on and donating now.
Thanks for sharing this important message. May the family of Auburn care that Kony is stopped and that these children, little boys made into soldiers and little girls into sex slaves, that they are protected, spared, and given a life of hope.
All Auburn All the Time!

I teach at a big high school here in Alabama. Apparently this went viral among many of the students the past two days. The Kony 2012 posters lined the halls today. It was an impressive sight. I had quite a few students come up to me and ask me about this. I'm pretty familiar with the Invisible Children campaign (they have actually come to the school a few times to talk to the kids) and it was great to see a bunch of young kids moved to want to do something to at least bring awareness to this issue and try to do something to help.
Strive for perfection in everything we do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, create it.
So I'm passing it on and donating now.
You might want to do a little more digging first.

Alabama delenda est.
Here is an article that I think fairly presents Invisible Children's view and the backlash. Seems like it is a mere argument about means of going about it, actual aid vs. awareness. I think both have their places.
Nonprofit organization Invisible Children has had the viral media hit of 2012 with their #kony2012 video--a slick half-hour video documentary designed to shine a light on little-known (until yesterday) African war criminal Joseph Kony. Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army has operated in Uganda and nearby countries for years, with a steadily established modus operandi of kidnapping children for use as soldiers, raping village women, and destroying small towns. The video advocates using force to bring Kony to justice and try him before the International Criminal Court for war crimes.
